Freeipods Pt 8: Followup Wired.com article

In continuing with yesterday: Wired News has an additional story.

Freeipods Pt 7: The wait continues

Found this article today about freeipods.com. A few things to note: “The wait is 100 percent due to Apple’s manufacturing,” said Gratis co-founder Peter Martin. “Apple is on back order.

For making such a crummy web browser the internet had to suffer for so long. 1,000,000 souls saved from eternal internet suffering, and brought to the Internet promised to them. Let us spread the good word and give all the option of being saved. As if it needs to be said. If you haven’t already, […]
